The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has issued another product registration to Cambridge-based Lystek International for its commercial fertilizer product, LysteGro, which is produced at its market leading biosolids and organics processing facility in Dundalk, Ontario.
“Farming is changing so fast. There are economic and environmental pressures forcing us to rethink how we fertilize soil,” said Jim Patton, CEO of Patton Poultry Breeders Inc. and president of the Innovative Farmers of Ontario (IFAO). “For my operation, Class A quality products are the only way to go. I am willing to invest in LysteGro because it is better for our operations, business and the environment.”
The registration is formal recognition by the federal government that the nutrient rich, organically based LysteGro can be used as a fertilizer product. The registration allows customers to utilize it in a wider range of settings and store LysteGro at their facilities, allowing easier, more convenient application.
“The Southgate Organic Materials Recovery Centre is the first facility of its kind in Canada. Receiving a registration for an operation that recovers and reuses these raw materials from multiple sources to produce a CFIA-registered fertilizer is a real win for all stakeholders,” said Rick Mosher, president of Lystek.
